Humming, humming, humming
Please go away, go far
You don’t belong
Humming

They come in crowding hordes
As one, a lethal force
Oh stay away
Humming

Hours we spent creating
Building squirrels a house
Hornets took it
Humming

They’ve found a home
One that they like
They will not leave
Humming

A hose-like deadly spray
Will see the hornets die
Still some survive
Humming

Humming
